The Roxy gets a facelift!

Shiny and New. 3D Movies!!!!

I’ve always thought of The Roxy Theater as one of the truly special gems of Cascade.  Luckily I’m not the only one.  Jason Speer, her owner, has partnered with Mark and Kristina Pickard to breathe new life into this treasure.  Yes, you might recognize the Pickard name.  Mark and Kristina are the benefactors of Kelly’s Whitewater Park here in Cascade – another recent local gem.

The Roxy Theater, which was first built in 1939, is better than ever.  It is new both inside and out, without compromising the plush feel and looks of its original self.  In the past couple of months her exterior has been redone – refurbished sign, freshened stucco and paint, and roof work.  On the inside there is new digital projection, new sound, new heating, new (very fancy) restrooms, AND BRAND NEW SEATS!

Lots of Repairs
